Phobos over Mars from Mars Express, 26 March 2010

Phobos over Mars from Mars Express, 26 March 2010
Phobos over Mars from Mars Express, 26 March 2010 Mars Express' High Resolution Stereo Camera (HRSC) caught Phobos over Mars' limb on its orbit 7982, on March 26, 2010. The waviness of Mars in the background is a by-product of the line-scanning nature of HRSC. This photo was captured during one of two Phobos flyby seasons that happened last year; the other was in August. The March photos are now available to everyone via ESA's Planetary Science Archive.
